    Hi,


    It seems that you're the Guru on these Internationals. I'm just getting into it, but I'd like to get good.


    How did you get the ultimate servicemaxx? Is there somewhere I can torrent it or download it and use a keygen? I'm assuming I can't just buy it.


    I also would love to ask some questions, if you have time.


    Thanks!
    -Kerry

    Hey Christopher. Jeremy here, working on a 2001 Thomas 40' RE. The bus originally had 3 ceiling mounted AC units in it, and I've removed the rear two (the rear one wasn't cooling anymore, but the front and mid units do). I'd like to relocate the front unit and place it just behind the front passenger wheel well under a bench and duct it either out the front or up behind the seat or both. I've got a few questions if you don't mind:

    - Underneath the bus are two identical skirt condensers. It makes sense that only one would be needed, how do I determine which one to keep?

    - Similar question regarding the two compressors mounted on top of the engine. Keep one? Change belt length to accommodate deleting one?

    - What is the most effective way to enclose / duct the relocated unit?

    Thank you for sharing your expertise if you have the time. Jeremy D

    Vehicle is a international 4300LP ambulance, so the ambulance upfitter ends up doing a LOT to the vehicle. It's their 2001 testing and certification label that calls out 190hp. So, I don't know if they actually de-rated it, or the guy doing the certification label was lazy / made a mistake. To be fair, the certification plaque seems to mostly be about testing / certifying the electrical system's ability to deliver current over a 1hr test so the hp rating engine wouldn't matter so long as it can spin the alternator at the spec rpm.

    Trans is a Allison 3060, so no issue there. That is a big reason I ended up with this truck. We use it to pull a 30' enclosed trailer to the races and sleep in the ambulance.

    Wondering if there is any way to tell what HP a DT466E (2001 year) is programmed to? The plaque on my engine is 230hp/620tq which I believe is the top spec for a ST engine. However, I also have a plaque on the body from the builder that says 195hp which makes me wonder if it was de-rated? Feels under-powered to me, but then again that could just be me. I'm sure the dealer could tell me, but I shudder to think what they'd charge just to hook up so I was hoping maybe there was another way?

    hi, I saw you can reprogram ECM on T444E. What do you need from me wand whats the price? I have a small school bus that is horrifically gutless and pulled the DPF retrofit off it with no real improvement. Curious on how to squeeze enough torq from it to at least maintain speed when going uphill and keep it reliable. Thanks.

    The Bus Boys bus appreciation club? All I found online were singers. Is there a link to the site for those who appreciate vintage buses?

    Chris,
    I sent a pm, this morning, but not sure it went through.
    Short version is, what do you recommend (if it's doable) to increase mpg on a 366? 4-5 mpg won't cut it. Thought about swapping to a 6.0 (gas), cause I'm not sure if a 5.3 would get the job done.
    This would be in a short 90s GMC bus, not a cut-a-way.

    Thanks, and Happy New Year,

    Harry
